CONARD STUDENT REGISTRATION INFORMATION
Principal's Welcome Letter:
As I sit and write this letter, I suspect that like many other students across the country, the last few months at school have been unlike anything you could have imagined. However, every day I become more and more optimistic that we will be back to “normal” soon, and able to enjoy all of the things that we have so deeply missed. With that in mind, I would like to welcome you to the 2021-2022 Conard High School Program of Studies. I am extremely proud of the array of courses that we offer to meet the individual needs, abilities, and interests of all students. This Program of Studies has been designed to guide you in planning your academic program. We encourage you to use this Program of Studies to understand the various opportunities available to you. You will find pertinent information such as graduation requirements, course descriptions, NCAA eligibility requirements, and additional items with which you will want to be familiar.
It is never too early to begin thinking about your future career. Our Program of Studies will guide you in making educated decisions regarding possible career pathways. Challenge yourself by enrolling in rigorous courses and setting your goals high. Although the courses you select while at Conard are important in determining your direction after high school, it is also imperative to enjoy a well-rounded experience participating in various co-curricular activities. Whatever your interests are, Conard offers students a wide variety of opportunities that will allow you to become an involved member of our school community.
As you go through the course selection process please talk to your teachers, school counselor, department supervisors, and administrators. In addition, spend time exploring and discussing the various options with your parents/guardians. You are also encouraged to visit our website for additional information.
Remember to set your goals high and to work hard to achieve them. During your four years at Conard, take advantage of the vast opportunities and endless resources that are available to all students. I urge you to plan a demanding course load and immerse yourself in the Conard community through participation in our many co-curricular activities. Know that when you walk across the stage to receive your Conard diploma, you have gained the 21st century skills needed to face all of the challenges and changes that the future holds.
Course Selection Steps
Beginning Monday, January 29, 2021 and ending Monday, February 12, 2021, students should log into their Power School portal to view teacher course recommendations and make their course choices for the upcoming school year.
Students should consult with their teachers and parents while making their selections. All students will be meeting with their counselors throughout the upcoming quarter to review and finalize their choices. Please help us complete step one of this process by making your initial selections online by Monday, February 12, 2021.
- Step 1 - view the instructional video (below) or read the Course Requests Instructions
- Step 2 - if you desire, print a POS Lite and a grade-specific planning worksheet (both below) to map out your courses and credits. In addition, the "Connecting Your Courses to Your Career Pathway" link can also be printed for your reference.
- Step 3 - log into your Power School portal, select and submit your course choices (electronic access is available in school buildings if needed)
- Important Note - WHPS is an open choice district. While we strongly recommend selections match teacher recommendations, students may choose their own program of study. Please discuss your choices intently with your teachers, parents, and counselor in these situations.
